Do you suffer from stress or anxiety ? Do you need to lose weight, improve heart health and lower your risk of Type 2 diabetes ?
Want support to feel well and healthy? Do you often feel alone ?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be suitable for Yoga4Health's 10-week course. The course of classes provides support with all of the above conditions and more.
This 10-week course offers gentle yoga and no prior experience is needed. Beginners and people of all ages and abilities are welcome. Your expertly trained yoga teacher will adapt every practice, so you can participate fully and work at your own pace in a supportive and non-judgemental atmosphere.
What will the classes involve?
Each of the 10 sessions will last two hours and include:
• Breathing practices
• Simple yoga postures
• Meditation and Mindfulness
• Discussion at the end
There will be around 15 people in each class.
What is expected of me if I join?
As well as attending 10 sessions of two hours each, you will be encouraged to do some yoga at home between sessions. You will be given guidance via home practice sheets and/or YouTube videos.
There are two ways to join the programme:
1. Discuss with your local GP
2. Self referral – contact your local Yoga4Health teacher - Zoe Drake on 07763 833667
